Antoine Walker Could Be NBDL-Bound

by November 29, 2010

The Artist Formely Known as Employee No.8 will reportedly (and finally) return to pro hoops; it just won’t be in the NBA. Not yet, anyway. FanHouse reports: “Antoine Walker has made numerous comeback attempts since last playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2007-08 NBA season, but the latest may show how dedicated he actually is at getting another shot in the NBA. Walker could soon be signing a contract with the NBA Development League, possibly as soon as Monday, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation. Walker, 34, averaged 17.5 points and 7.7 rebounds over the course of his 12-year NBA career but wasn’t able to earn an NBA training camp invite with the Charlotte Bobcats earlier this year after showing up to practice with them in September, a career move that seemingly signaled the end of domestic relevance for the former three-point ‘shimmy’er.”
